CEN Workshop on 'Characterization of a hybrid heat pump module'

The planned CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) specifies the experimental characterization of the modular hybrid heat pump under real operating conditions in order to define a performance map of efficiency and heat pump capacity as a function of operating parameters.

The characterization includes tests to be performed aiming at evaluating critical parameters, such as Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), cooling power, energy savings against the standard operation of the vapour compression chiller and CO2 emissions savings. With this objective, the testing rig used is equipped with high-accuracy sensors and able to supply the temperature levels and power needed to simulate the operation of the system under a wide range of operating conditions, corresponding to the possible scenarios for its application in industries.


The kick-off meeting will be held on Friday, 29 April 2022, from 10.00-13.00 CET as a web meeting.

Requests to participate in the Workshop and/or comments on the project plan are to be submitted by 22 April 2022 to nortiz@une.org. You are kindly requested to use the commenting form below.
